Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

416. At the Name of Jesus

1 At the name of Jesus ev'ry knee shall bow,
ev'ry tongue confess him king of glory now.
It is God's good pleasure we should call him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

2 At his voice creation sprang at once to sight,
all the angel faces, all the hosts of light,
thrones and dominations, stars upon their way,
all in heav'nly orders in their great array.

3 Humbled for a season, to receive a name
from the lips of sinners unto whom he came,
faithfully he bore it spotless to the last;
brought it back victorious when from death he passed.

4 In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue
all that is not holy, all that is not true.
Crown him as your captain in temptations' hour;
let his will enfold you in its light and pow'r.

5 Christians, this Lord Jesus shall return again
on the clouds of glory, with his angel train;
for all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
and our hearts confess him king of glory now.
